Although there’s no official or legal definition of black rum there is a general acceptance that black rums are on the very darkest end of the colour spectrum. This colour comes from aging in heavily charred wooden barrels but can also come from the addition of caramel.
Malcolm Gosling, the president and CEO of Gosling’s International Limited, explains black rum as “All black rums are dark rums, but not all dark rums are black,” he says. “Black Seal is a blend of three separate rums distilled from fermented molasses then aged in charred American white oak for three years.”
